Collaborative European research initiatives
A Horizon 2020 Marie SkƗodowska-Curie Actions Funded European Training Network
The ‘SECRETERS’ partnership aims to bring about a step change in the production of recombinant proteins, particularly biotherapeutics and industrial enzymes. Many proteins in these categories pose severe problems in production, especially disulphide-bonded proteins and new format ‘difficult-to-express’ proteins. SECRETERS will train a team of 15 Early Stage Researchers to develop a new generation of super-producing microbial production hosts, especially Bacillus species, Escherichia coli and the yeast Komagataella phaffii (known as Pichia pastoris).
